> Authorities said Strickland told them that she did not know the intruder and, at this point, believe the shooting to be a case of a mother trying to protect her children.
No harm, no foul. Well done, ma'am.
I don't normally rejoice when people get shot and killed -- even when that person is a burglarizing scroat -- but in this case I make an exception.
Home invading is Not On. Invading the home of a 9 mo. pregnant mum is definitely Not On. It's so far outside the accepted boundaries of decent human behavior that it is Way Major Uncool.
So she shot the scroat and he died, and I'll shed no tears for his passing. I hope it hurt.
he intruder, whose name was not released, left the scene in critical condition, but died shortly before arriving to a local hospital.
Believe me, it hurt, he was likely screaming
all most of the way to the hospital. He was real quiet when he arrived however. Real, real quiet.
